the collection redux (A.K. edit)


video, single channel, 16:9, sound

3 hours 26 minutes 41 seconds

A collector's box of Akira Karosawa movies: Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, Rashomon, Drunken Angel, The Hidden Fortress, High and Low, Throne of Blood, Stray Dog, The Bad Sleep Well, Dodesukaden. All these movies are projected on top of each other. A nearly empty, white screen is formed, sometimes pierced by faint moving shadows, like ghosts. This creates an empty projection screen, a new space - not defined by absence, but overexposure. The soundtrack (also from all the movies) on the other hand is complete chaos.
